Magical candy that gives kids superpowers? Sweet! The possibility of evil overtaking the world? Not so tasty. And so begins The Candy Shop War, a trilogy from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Beyonders and Fablehaven series.
Welcome to the Sweet Tooth Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe, where the confections are a bit on the...unusual side. In this start to the series, four young friends—Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon—meet the grandmotherly Mrs. White, owner of the Sweet Tooth, and soon learn about the magical side effects of her candies: Rock candy that makes you weightless. Jawbreakers that make you unbreakable. Chocolate balls that make you a master of disguise.
In addition, the ice cream truck driver, Mr. Stott, has arrived with a few enchanted sweets of his own. But what about the mysterious man in the dark overcoat and fedora hat? And why are all these “magicians” trying to recruit Nate and his friends? Who can they trust?
The mystery deepens and the danger unfolds as the four of them discover that the magical strangers have all come to town in search of a legendary, hidden treasure—one that could be used for great evil if it fell into the wrong hands. The kids, now in over their heads, must try to retrieve the treasure first. And so, the war begins...

Candy Shop was amazing!!!, August 29, 2007
I am a big fan of the Fablehaven Series. When I saw Brandon had already written another book outside of the series I was anxious to read it. I got my hands on an advanced reader copy. This book was fantastic. Brandon is an amazing author. I love his sense of humor and the way he portrays his characters, they are very likable and you feel like you really get to know them. Just like Fablehaven I felt like the characters would do things and make similar decisions that I would do. Anyway, all those who love great books, be sure to read Candy Shop, you won't be disappointed!!
fabulous talent and book, February 07, 2008
Brandon Mull has done it again- this book is gripping right up to the end. With Mull's talent and a good storyline you can't go wrong. if you loved Fablehaven, you'll love Candy Shop war
Excellent For ANYONE!!, September 22, 2008
This book is so great. I told my husband we were going to read it - he rolled his eyes... Then when I started he wouldn't let me stop! A great book for a family to read together, or grandparents to read to grandchildren! You'll wish there was a sequel!
